Oritsefemi Claims Godfather Status Over Wizkid, Burna Boy, and Davido

Nigerian singer Oritsefemi Majemite Ekele, widely known as Oritsefemi, has stirred controversy with his recent assertion that he serves as the godfather to some of Nigeria’s biggest music stars, including Wizkid, Burna Boy, and Davido.

In a candid interview with Chude Jideonwo, Oritsefemi boasted of his pivotal role in the early careers of these renowned artists, asserting that he had already achieved financial success in the music industry before they rose to prominence.

“I had already made money from the music industry when some people were sleeping,” Oritsefemi declared, highlighting his seniority and influence in the industry.

He claimed to have played a mentoring role in the careers of Wizkid, Burna Boy, and Davido, stating, “I encouraged them. I’m like their godfather.”

Oritsefemi went further to reveal instances where he provided support to these artists, including offering accommodation to Burna Boy in his Lekki mansion during their earlier days in the industry.

The singer’s bold statements have sparked reactions across social media platforms, with some questioning the authenticity of his claims and others expressing surprise at his self-proclaimed godfather status.

Oritsefemi rose to fame with his remake of Fela Kuti’s “Double Wahala” song, earning accolades and awards for his rendition. His contributions to the Nigerian music scene have been recognized, with nominations and wins at prestigious events such as the City People Entertainment Awards and the Nigeria Entertainment Awards.

As debates continue over Oritsefemi’s assertions, his remarks have added a new dimension to discussions about mentorship and influence within the Nigerian music industry.
